La Retraithe Sixth Form

T Levels

The La Retraite 6 is proudly a pilot centre for T Levels in 2020; one of only 50 centres in the country chosen to pioneer these qualifications.


Equivalent to three A Levels and developed in collaboration with employers and businesses alike, T Levels combine classroom theory, practical learning, and a three-month industry placement with an employer to provide students with practical experience of the work place. Designed with businesses in mind, content on T Level courses aims to meet the needs of industry and prepare students for work, offering knowledge and experience needed to open the door to highly skilled employment, an apprenticeship or higher-level study.
